SACRAMENTO, CA – In yet another sign of the groundswell of conservative support building behind her campaign, U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today earned the endorsement of former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
“Carly is the Commonsense Conservative that California needs and our country could sure use in these trying times. She’s not a career politician. She’s a businesswoman who has run a major corporation. She knows how to really incentivize job creation. Her fiscal conservatism is rooted in real life experience. She knows that when government grows, the private sector shrinks under the burden of debt and deficits. We can trust Carly to do the right thing for America’s economy and to make the principled decisions she has throughout her professional career,” said Governor Palin. “Please consider that Carly is the conservative who has the potential to beat California’s liberal senator, Barbara Boxer, in November. I’m a huge proponent of contested primaries, so I’m glad to see the contest in California’s GOP, but I support Carly as she fights through a tough primary against a liberal member of the GOP who seems to bear almost no difference to Boxer, one of the most leftwing members of the Senate.”
Palin served most recently as governor of Alaska, a post to which she was elected in 2006. Palin was a candidate for vice president in 2008, serving as Senator John McCain’s running mate and making her the Republican Party’s first female vice-presidential nominee. Previously, Palin was a member of the Wasilla City Council from 1992 to 1996 and was mayor of Wasilla from 1996 to 2002.
“I am honored and grateful to have Sarah Palin’s support. She, too, is a political outsider and a strong fiscal conservative, and we share a common concern for the direction our country is headed in under Barbara Boxer and her allies in Washington,” said Fiorina. “Californians across the state have had enough of Washington insiders and their political games, and together, I am confident we will help restore integrity to our nation’s capital by bringing Barbara Boxer’s 28-year career to an end.”
Yesterday, Fiorina earned the endorsement of the National Right to Life Political Action Committee, the largest pro-life political action committee in the nation. Previously, Fiorina was endorsed by the National Right to Life Committee’s California affiliate, the California Pro-Life Council, and the Susan B. Anthony List, another national pro-life political action committee.
